He does a few things wrong
Chain adjustment

  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the nuts that are clamping the guide bar in place (or whatever your saw uses to hold the side plate and bar on with). We don't need these really loose - just finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. Now, while holding the nose up, adjust the tension so that the chain just touches the underside of the bar.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the side plate nuts / bolts / quick-release system.

Need to put chain back on. It come


Take off the side plate. Loosen the 2 bar mounting bolts and next to the par there is a screwhead adjuster. loosen the adjuster... reinstall the chain. tighten the adjuster to where there is less than 1/4 inch deflection in the chain when you press it with your finger between the bar and the sprocket.

Tighten the bar mounting bolts and re-install the side plate.

Thanks for choosing FixYa. Kelly

P.s. This was a GENERIC response because you did not include your MAKE & model number. If the information above does not work for you.. respond with your model number and I will respond with parts listings so you can locate the adjuster and bar mouting bolts.

How do I reattach chain after it slipped off


Normal 0 This will be the basic instruction for most common saws. Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by moving the front hand guard towards the front handle if the saw is equipped with a chain brake on the handle. Loosen the bar nuts on the clutch cover. Loosen tension screw or other adjuster (thumbscrew) to allow the bar to be moved toward the engine. Some saws have this tension adjustment built into the bar. This will provide enough slack in the chain to able to reinstall it. It may be necessary to remove the side cover to gain access to the clutch/gear assembly on the side of the engine if the chain also jumped the gear here. Remove the cover, inspect for any debris or other obstructions in this area. If none, replace the chain back over the drive gear and in the bar groove all the way around the bar. It may be necessary to turn the bar adjuster screw more to provide enough slack in the chain to do this. Once the chain is in place reinstall the cover and bar lock nuts. Snug up the nuts but do not tighten these. Turn the bar/chain adjuster screw to tighten the chain on the bar (take up slack). I usually tighten to a point where there is no slack between the chain and the bottom of the bar and I can still turn the chain easily around the bar by hand. With experience you will get the feel for this chain tension. Once the chain is properly tensioned, tighten the bar lock bolts/ nuts on the side cover. I hope this helps you out.

Adjust primary chain on a harley davidson motorcycle


after safely supporting rear wheel off ground, remove small inspection cover from primary cover. rotate rear wheel until primary chain is at tightest point. cold engine- chain free play should be 5/8" - 7/8", hot engine should be 3/8" - 5/8". to adjust, loosen primary chain adjuster shoe nut (bolt head is similar to a carriage bolt-square head), sometimes you will need to tap bolt end to free up adjuster, as it sits in grooces to hold at desired level. adjust to desired tension and tighten bolt to 22-29 ft/lbs. then recheck chain freeplay after rotating rear wheel at least one full revolution. If OK, reinstall cover.

How to change cahain saw blades


If you want to change the chain bar you need to remove the cover on the side the bar enters. This is usually done with with a 1/2 inch wrench or if the tool-less model, completely loosen the hand nut on the side until it comes off. You will be able to how the bar is installed under this cover. Make note of the direction of the chain teeth to insure you put the chain back on correctly.

It is better to wear gloves when working with the chains also. Install the new bar and reinstall the side cover and retaining nuts. Snug up the nuts but not tight, adjust the chain with the chain adjusting screw or thumb-wheel for about a dime's width play between the bottom of the chain bar and the chain midway along the bar.

Some Poulan Pros have an adjuster screw on the front of the engine case right beside the bar, some have a tool less adjuster on the clutch cover, and some have a slot in the bar for adjusting the chain tension.


I hope this helps you out.

How to u put chain on r6


If the chain has a master link, then you can just loosen the rear axle and let the chain tension adjustment all the way in. Then wrap the chain around both sprockets and install the connecting link. After this retighten the chain. For a chain without a master link( endless chain) you will have to remove the swing arm to allow you to get the chain on the front sprocket. After reinstalling the swing arm, and rear wheel you can adjust the chain tension and then tighten the rear axle.

Chainsaw 34cc 350mm bar polun, tha adjusting


Did the cover crack? The adjusting screw is just a common metric screw; the nut has a special tang that engages one of the 2 large holes at the drive end of the bar. When reinstalling the bar and chain, the adjustment screw must be backed off a few turns so the the tang will readily drop into it's hole in the bar. Install the cover (new if old one cracked) and turn the nut(s) down finger tight. Turn the adjuster CW to tighten the chain so that the chain doesn't droop from the bar, but turns freely by hand. Tighten the cover nut(s) and recheck the chain again.

The chain on my Remington electric saw keeps jumping the sprocket. Solution? Thanks.


Depending to what model you have, the Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. Or your cahin is not tensioned properly. According to the manufacturer... "The adjusting block on the adjusting screw isn’t inserted into the adjusting hole on the guide bar. Reinstall and align the sprocket cover by first removing the sprocket cover from the saw. Turn tensioning screw on the sprocket cover counter-clockwise until it stops. Pull guide bar away from saw body to remove slack from chain. Insert sprocket cover tab into saw body tab slot and lower sprocket cover into guide bar bolt. Finger tighten guide bar nut onto guide bar bolt. Slowly push guide bar toward saw body until adjusting block on the adjusting screw drops into round adjusting hole on the guide bar. Securely tighten guide bar nut after properly tensioning saw chain." If these tips do not work, you may need a new chain. You can order an new chain on-line at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps you!
